Welcome to Year 5:
William Shakespeare Class Teacher: Mrs Stockbridge
Benjamin Zepheniah Class Teacher: Miss McFarlane
All pupils are expected to be punctual in the morning in order to complete morning maths and maximise their learning each day. PE days this year are Tuesday and Friday for Benjamin Zephaniah and a Wednesday and Friday for William Shakespeare class. Please ensure children have their PE kits in school on these days and that they have correct PE uniform.
The children will be continuing with their ukulele lessons which will take place on a Thursday afternoon.
As a year group we will be beginning by reading Way Home, alongside different class readers so that children are enjoying a range of texts. It is important that the children read for at least 20 minutes every day and that this is recorded in their reading journals. All children will be taking home a reading book of their choice and a key text from age appropriate texts. Their reading diaries will be checked on a weekly basis so please record these sessions. Every child will be moving along on the reading challenge and their recorded reading will help towards this.
Class Teachers will be regularly communicating with parents in the playground on behaviour as we believe, as a school, that the behaviour of pupils is key to a successful learning environment. We appreciate the effort and work completed at home – please come and speak to us if you have any questions or queries!
